US President to be met by demonstrators in Europe

The US President, George W. Bush, will be met by German demonstrators when he arrives to Berlin on 22 May for a six-day visit to Europe.

President Bush is visiting Germany, Russia, France and Italy to get support for possible US military action against Iraq. However, the visit is in danger of being disrupted by peaceful protests against the US foreign policy.

In Moscow, President Bush and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, will sign a nuclear arms reduction treaty cutting the deployed strategic nuclear warheads by two-thirds over the next decade.

Trade disputes, such as the recent US tariffs for steel imports and new farm subsidies, will dominate Mr Bush's talks with his EU counterparts.
